Garfield Logan has spent his entire life being overlooked. Even in a small town like Eden, Georgia, the 17-year-old with green streaks in his hair can’t find a way to stand out–and the clock is ticking. Senior year is almost over. If Gar doesn’t find a way to impress the Chosen Ones–the social elite at Bull Creek High School–he will never know what it’s like to matter. Gar ...more

This was good and yet not good at the same time. Of course the art was beautiful and the storyline was packed, much more than other DC graphic novels have been. But still there was something about this that I didn't like and I lay the blame on Gar himself.

Gar is a problematic protagonist. He's a nice guy, good-looking. Sure he's short and not muscular and doesn't have any facial hair but that doesn't make him any less of a person. Yet, for some reason he's ob

I got to say a very pleasant surprise. Beast Boy is not my favourite Teen Titan, I usually prefer the darker characters, but for me he has been an integral part of the team to balance out the darker characters. I read the introduction and it shos definitely how much Gabriel Picolo like Beast Boy.

The story suited Gar perfectly. This is not an action packed superhero book. This is a story of Gar coming to terms with his life, dealing with normal things everyone does growing up. The discovering his

I've probably said too many times in previous reviews these young adult graphic novel paperbacks (formerly known as the 'DC Ink' series, featuring teenage versions of established heroes and villains) have been some hit-or-miss affairs. Well, they got it right this time, in regards to the proper ton

I received a copy of this book for free from the publisher (DC Comics) in exchange for an honest review.

I’m not super familiar with the Teen Titans so going in I knew very little about Beast Boy. Because of this, I didn’t have any particular expectations going into it. I ended up enjoying learning the origin story of Beast Boy.


As a whole, the plot is fairly basic. There really isn’t anything super exciting going on since this is just the first part of his story. It basically him navigating hig

Kami Garcia and Gabriel Picolo's followup to Teen Titans: Raven was pretty solid. In fact, I enjoyed it more than Raven. It's pretty standard YA affair for the most part. Gar is small in stature and wants to be popular so starts doing web stunts. Eventually, his Beast Boy nature starts to creep in. It looks like we will need to wait until the next volume though to get much world building.

I like Picolo's art and muted color palette. I do take issue though with his lack of backgrounds though. A lo

One of the 2020 Goodreads nominated graphic novels, the second in a series that began with Raven, which I also rated three stars. This is pretty standard fare YA, and I suppose a must for Teen Titan fans, as it was among the top vote-getters. About Gar, who is focused (wrongly) on becoming popular, okay. Not a fan of the sort of faded art with no backgrounds. We don't know much of the world of the Titans here, lots of loose ends for future volumes. Some of the dialogue fits the wise-cracking Gar ...more

If I had to name a favorite Teen Titan, I’d have to admit it’s not Beast Boy. However, in recent years on Instagram, I’ve been following this incredible artist, Gabriel Picolo (@_picolo). His artwork of Raven and Beast Boy is PHENOMENAL. So you know, go give him a follow, and check out his work because it’s just *chef’s kiss*. And let’s not forget KAMI freaking GARCIA!

I honestly don't know why I decided to read this... Actually that's a lie. I do.

Firstly, and possibly most importantly, MC who's name I don't remember is cute (I think his name is Garfield but I'm too lazy to fact check that).
Secondly, I was kind of curious. I saw this whole series when I was looking through future titles on Goodreads and I thought "huh, that looks interesting" and then completely forgot about it until I saw it on Hoopla a few days ago.

This was really cute! I loveeee Teen Titans and I had so much fun reading Beast Boy's origin story. My only complaint would be that I wish these comics were longer. I feel like they end right when the action is about to really take off and I don't know if/when we will learn what happens to Beast Boy (and I'm still waiting to find out what happened to Raven from her comic).

But I love the art (Gabriel Picolo is the best and I love his art style) and I was never bored once while reading t

Thank you DC Comics for the gifted review copy!

I grew up watching Teen Titans and I was so excited to find out about this collection of graphic novels coming out. I read Teen Titans: Raven and absolutely loved it! I also adore origin stories and this one was definitely a favorite. The story was really fun to read. I loved getting to know Beast Boy more. The art was amazing as usual. Also a really quick read that keeps you looking forward to the next one. There's going to be a Teen Titans: Beast

I really liked this one, too! The art style is really beautiful and the story itself is entertaining.

If I had to rate the two that are out so far in this series:

1. Raven: 4.5 stars.
2. Beast Boy: 4 stars.

I have a thing for found family/sister relationships, so I think that’s why I enjoyed Raven a little more.

I am really sad that I have to wait another year for the next installment. 😭

Can fall 2021 hurry up, please!

I've been following Picolo for FOREVER (pre-Icarus and the Sun days, people) and was not disappointed with Kami's work in Raven in the slightest! I can't wait to read about my (comic) book boyfriend BB. It's SOO early but please, DC, sign a deal for Starfire.

Y'ALL I READ IT 3 TIMES IN ONE DAY AND I'M STILL FINDING EASTER EGGS. This, like Raven, is definitely one you need to reread. I loved it sooo much. Now comes waiting another year for BB Loves Raven. :((((

Absolutely enjoyable! As a die hard team titans fan, I love how the story is building to the team coming together with H.I.V.E.

I think it’s interesting that in both books so far (Raven & Beast Boy) focuses a lot on their insecurities. So I’m hoping the next one does something a little different.

Also, as a diabetic person I also feel weird when books bring it up as the worst thing ever... so I could’ve done with those two jokes or statements.

It was cute. I like Raven's story better but I'm so looking forward to the next one with both of them in it. The first one was more about Raven and her coming into and learning her powers. This one spent about two-thirds of the book on angsty teen stuff. ...more

I loved reading this book! The graphics were amazing, and the storyline was fun and fast paced. I was able to read this book in under an hour and it held my full attention the entire time. Gar is trying to fit in and be popular at school. This book is about coming-of-age, acceptance and belonging. The teaser for the next book was exciting and I can’t wait for Raven to meet and get to know Gar better.

The first book in this series, Teen Titans: Raven, was borderline okay, but this one is a dull mess. I've never been a fan of Beast Boy since I first became aware of him during the 1980s when he was the pathetic comic relief in Marv Wolfman's Teen Titans. This update does nothing to make him less annoying or more interesting as he whines about being a scrawny loser and chases internet popularity.

The writing is uninspired, and since it is to be continued, a ton of plot lines are left unresolved.

Thank you so much to DC Comics for providing me with a free e-ARC of this book in exchange for an honest opinion!

This comic was everything I wanted it to be and even more! I grew up with the Teen Titans and although Robin (all four of them) will always be my favorite, Beast Boy is a very close second. I absolutely devoured this new comic.

The plot and the illustration are stunningly gorgeous. I truly loved everything about it, from Gar to his friends and holy cow I cannot wait for the next

I really loved this! Garfield’s new design is so sick! It totally fits with his character, I love my vegetarian boy.
The art style is just as amazing as it was in Raven’s comic but this time the story has more substance, the passing is way better too and the characters had a lot of charm to them. I think this change for the better had to do with the fact that Beast Bo

There was so much heart in this comic. All the teenage troubles of fitting in and being noticed were there. But there was also Stella and Daniel “The Tank” Tanaka who everyone just calls Tank. It was cute and his friend were the best! I mean “group hug,” was used and honestly it made me smile so big. I love how friendship is shown in this comic.

I wasn’t a huge fan of the Raven book, but I enjoyed this one slightly more. Although my memory of the previous book isn’t the best (it was pretty forgettable), I think I just found Gar more charming in this one. Don’t get me wrong, the writing is still super stilted and cliche in this, but it had a few fun moments. I’ll probably keep reading these because they’re quick reads and I’m a sucker for Teen Titans, but they seem to be continuing the trend of being mediocre. 3/5 stars.

I loved Raven and was really excited about this one but it sorta fell flat. Not enough is explained in a satisfactory way and not much really happens. I was disappointed in this one honestly. I can see how it will fit into the overall series but this felt like 80% filler, 20% plot. I’m still really looking forward to the next one!

”Other people will never accept you if you don’t accept yourself.”

I was given Teen Titans: Raven to read without any prior knowledge of the Teen Titans, but I really enjoyed it, so when I saw the next volume I just had to have it.

Beast Boy is witty, clever and so much fun. Sometimes you're edging Gar on and others you just hold your head in your hands and tell him "Bad Idea Gar"
But rooting for him - even in his stupid moments - is never optional.
